Dog Crates. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 14:11:30 PM
It is best to begin crate training with dogs while they are puppies, but older dogs can be trained to go into crates as well. The best way to start is to set the crate up without any expectations of the dog actually going in. Let the dog check the crate out and get used to it. Once the dog is used to the crate, begin to put treats or toys inside to persuade the dog to go in. It is usually only a short time before dogs begin to go into the crates of their own volition. Once they start going in, begin closing the door for short periods of time, gradually increasing the time, and before you know it, your dog will be crate trained.
The option to secure ones dog in a confined space at night, in the car, or simply whenever its convenient is a great convenience. Dogs, too, seem to enjoy the security and comfort of a dog crate once accustomed to them. When shopping for a dog crate, dog owners have many choices to make size, brand, and design all play a part in choosing the perfect dog crate. The most common crates are a simple plastic shell with a metal grated door. However, there are also a wide range of soft dog crates, made from fabric on a lightweight metal frame.
As mentioned above there are advantages and disadvantage to the different types of crates (plastic, softsided, wire) offered. Think about how the crate will be used can help with your choice of homes for your dog. Crate training has become standard practice for many dog owners by this time. Although the common belief that dogs have a natural den instinct is not, in fact, true, they do benefit from an exclusive and secure space to call their own. Dog crates allow owners to confine their dogs in an environment that quickly becomes familiar and reassuring to the dog.
